. >> reporter: governor romney has two stops in ohio today. president obama three. and they'll both be back before tuesday. both candidates campaigning as if they believe any letup and they'd lose ohio and lose the election. i'm steve handelsman, news 4. >>> right now we're in the final hours of early voting in the state of maryland. tends at 9:00 tonight. and once again there are long lines at the sports and learning center in landover, where people are trying to cast their ballot. extra voting machines were added at this and other locations across the county. but people are still waiting hours on end. today our prince george's county bureau chief tracy wilkins learned that an important reason for the backlog is lack of space and those voting machines. we'll have more in a live report coming up in the next half hour. >>> it is not ye9 clear exactly how the aftermath of hurricane sandy will affect voter turnout next week. what is clear is that a big event scheduled for this weekend, the new york city marathon, has been canceled. nbc's jay gray is in atlantic city now with more on that break

on this campaign already. president obama and governor romney have both canceled more than a dozen events in key swing states over the next several days. maryland and the nation's capital heavily democratic areas canceled early voting for today. a decision on tomorrow will be made depending on how bad this storm gets. some virginia counties have suspended in-person absentee voting, and the labor department announced the final jobs report before the election could be delayed. the october numbers are scheduled to come out friday. the bigger picture here, in a race this close we know turnout is key for both candidates. if folks don't have power and worried about their home, some worry getting to the pols won't be a top priority. who stands to gain the most from this tough situation? let's go to the table, and look, i've seen a bunch of stuff out today, the political science research which i'm very skeptical of. i would say for an incumbent president you have to do something. there's a lot of risk. there's a lot of potential for making a mistake. on a more simplistic level, i don't think if you're a
. romney turned a previously scheduled political rally in ohio in to a relief effort. both candidates are trying to stay visible and yet appropriate with seven days to go in the campaign. what does this all do to the race? we look at what is done to help the victims of the monster storm. national guard and red cross are out in force.

is going from both campaigns, does it mean they're more up for grabs? >> bob: romney spread out the electoral map no question about it. if obama were to lose minnesota, it would be a landslide for romney. they have to send him in to shore things up. he will get to colorado where he needs to be. what romney, though, is missing here is a lot of campaign events in ohio, which he desperately needs. >> dana: that's where he was today. >> bob: but he was doing fundraising there. which is fine. but he needs to do the rallies and other things. anytime you freeze something, it doesn't actually mean you come back to where it was when you froze it. >> eric: no, but it doesn't mean the momentum changes back. face it, president obama has had the best success at changing the polling. when he goes negative. when his negative ads about romney for bain capital. >> kimberly: that's when he was ahead. >> eric: he was a murderer. that's when he gets movem. he can't do that now. you have can't go negative now. >> bob: are you suggesting that romney hasn't attacked obama negatively? one thing we shou
nutter. thanks for coming inside "the war room." up next, president obama and mitt romney are both try hing to avoid politics this week. that doesn't mean politics won't find them. that story is next right here in "the war room." current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate. i look at her, and i just want to give her everything. yeah you -- you know, everything can cost upwards of...[ whistles ] i did not want to think about that. relax, relax, relax. look at me, look at me. three words, dad -- e-trade financial consultants. so i can just go talk to 'em? just walk right in and talk to 'em. dude those guys are pros. they'll hook you up with a solid plan. they'll -- wa-- wa-- wait a minute. bobby? bobby! what are you doing, man? i'm speed dating!

on the presidential race. with just eight days until election day, both romney and obama campaign have suspended e-mail fund-raising in some states in the storm's path. virginia, pennsylvania, new jersey, north carolina and the district of columbia. both candidates kansas selled campaign events scheduled for virginia. >>> president obama garnered the support of the blade in toledo ohio. pittsburgh post gazette and detroit free press. mitt romney was endorsed by the des moines register in des moines and the press enter vice in riverside, california. and it is a san francisco sweep. the giants beat detroit tiger last night to win the world series in four straight. game four went extra innings. san francisco winning. pablo san val was named the series' mvp. he says this years he year's giants were special. >> it's a team. i say thank you to my teammates to give me opportunity to be here. the two last series, you know, winning six, six, you know, elimination games is tough. >> it is the giants de world series title, this all in the last three year. soledad? >> good news for them. thank you very much f
. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look at where the storm is spread. it's now in ohio and virginia. these are places where the obama campaign had counted on early voting and they made a big effort on that. the president himself cashed the ballot early first time in u.s. history way to encourage others. democrats thought that might be advantageous for them. more republicans than democrats who voted early. again i think that's probably a watch -- wash. one thing it might effect things as we resume the campaign. tomorrow is going to be a half and half day by the end of the week we will be back to campaigning. when you have this emergency and you have this tragedy and latest effects of the tragedy are going to go right through election day. not a one day deal. there is imp
is what we do know, brian, both mitt romney and barack obama are not doing any campaign events at all tomorrow. and wednesday's schedule is still on the bubble. we'll see if they can get back on the trail. at that point it would be with just six days to go. >> well, chuck, what happens -- last time we had a hurricane, the halloween storm last year, we had power outages north of new york city. upstate new york, connecticut, rhode island, massachusetts, maine, vermont, eight to 11 days. what happens if people can't get to the polls to vote? is there a mechanism to delay a vote in certain places? >> reporter: well look, the states run the election system, it doesn't come from the government. i can tell you the topic came up. the fema director, fugate, did talk with officials. this is what happened in the state of florida when it happened in 2004. they moved polling places and got generators where it was necessary to open precincts. and by the way, the federal government reimbursed the state for those costs. that is why it came up, because state and local officials asked mr. fugate if the
and mitt romney just has to keep campaigning, but both campaigns don't know how this will affect town out. the big thing to do is look at new hampshire and virginia, two states that were affected by the storm and how it could affect the town out the voters. we do not know how it will shake out or if there is a rallying behind president obama in the last few difficulties before election day. >>neil: you never know if they would extend election day it would probably be a legal hurdle so leaving that aside, a lot of folks could be without power in a lot of areas so they have to file a paper ballot if you go to the precinct and you are, this is like some of these old countries where you have a slip paper and they count it at the precinct and it could be a long election night, could it not? >>guest: it could. and you are absolutely right, provisional ballots are something we will have to watch the i point out that most affected areas are not swing states but it could affect a senate race in connecticut and we will have to wait to see what the provisional ballots do for that but in cincinnati w
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti
but it showed that consumers are feeling better about the economy. >> is a big topic on the campaign trail. both candidates land in ohio today. governor romney visits seven states, including a rally in ohio tonight with 100 supporters, politicians, and celebrities. in virginia last night, a makeup before hurricane sandy, he argued that the resident is running out of steam. >> he was talking abut saving characters on "sesame street" and playing word games with my name and attacking me on a regular basis, a tax he knows are not true. >> president obama also visits the seven states between now and election day with a focus on ohio, is must-win state. he will be there every day between now and the election. >> al qaeda as been decimated, osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress these past four years. >> how will it shakeout on tuesday? >> romney has a 50-50 chance to win the popular vote. it is harder to see him winning the electorial vote. >> a possible split verdict from a nation deeply divided, and anxious to end this very long campaign. >> baltimore city police are investigating a sho
, to the final stretch for the race for the white house. both president obama and mitt romney battled the ohio tonight. mitt romney spoke to a large crowd in west chester. the president spoke in lie ma, ohio. he'll have one more stop in the buckeye stay before he heads to wisconsin, iowa and then northern virginia. his rally, jiffy lube live tomorrow. >> today was the last day of early voting in maryland. and the lines wrapped around the building in some places, ased p their ballot. >> reporter: i can see that you're so cold, you're crying. >> yes, i am. >> reporter: dedicated voters were put to the test with early voting with lines that stretched outside of voting places. >> i waited in line for four hours. that's just too long. >> reporter: so far, an estimated 56,000 people have voted. that's only 10% of wh's registered. so the thought of what's coming on election day has some worried. >> the facilities that we're using are not -- don't have the can passty th t capacity that we need to really conduct early voting. >> the state's formula for early voting coupled with limited space resulted i
. before the storm delivered both campaigns this curveball, if you will, mitt romney picked up up a key endorsement from t"the des moines register" that says romney offers a fresh economic position. it's the first support of a republican candidate since nixon. joining me from washington is dominico. normally we would say a hard turn from weather to politics, but i said earlier sandy is the third-party candidate a lot of people have been looking for in that this storm has greatly impacted the travel schedules and what we're seeing including the news coverage of this "des moines register" endorsement which would be a headline today aathp point. how impactful is it when you combine the storm coverage and does it matter what the newspaper editorial board said. >> it won't get the national coverage it would have gotten the day after the weekend, but it is still going to be a big issue in iowa. it's the largest paper in iowa. now all four of the major papers in iowa have all endorsed mitt romney. so i do think that as the president's been looking for -- to stop some of the mitt romney's momen
a lot about storm coverage but one week away from the election both president obama and mitt romney off the campaign trail. the president stayed at the white house in order to cover the impact. the romney campaign had events through today. out of sensitivity to those in harm's way. rom nae plans to hold a storm relief event later today in ohio. >> the most anticipated economic report left before the election might be delayed because of hurricane sandy. the monthly unemployment report scheduled to be released as you know on friday. he shut down public offices in washington. the bureau of labor statistics is assessing the situation but hopes to release it on time. some were skeptical of last month's report which was the first time in 43 months the unemployment rate was under 8 percent. >>> 14 minutes after the hour. it wasn't just affected by the monster storm causing travel troubles for the folks we have slight delays they are massive. >> super storm sandy wreaking havoc. flooding of course a major issue. kelly wright is live with more for for us. kelly, good morning. >> we have been out
surprise. well, the storm causing both the president and mitt romney cancel several campaign visits. the president was supposed to rally with former president bill clinton in florida. that's not happening. president obama, he arrived back in d.c. got off air force one. you can see the pictures there. quickly got into the motorcade. normally he is flown in a rain chopper from the joint andrews base in maryland, but weather forcing a road trip back to the white house. that often happens when the weather is pretty bad. they don't want to take any security risks or chance there's. the president scheduled to make remarks about hurricane sandy. that is happening at about 20 minutes or so, 12:45 eastern to be exact, so keep it right here because we're obviously going to dip into that. going to carry his speech live, the briefing. he will talk, obviously, about what the white house and the administration is doing, the number of phone calls, conference calls that he has been making throughout the morning and throughout the weekend preparing for hurricane sandy. of course, in the midst of all
for mitt romney to gain ohio? >> well, the independent votes are important to both camps, thomas. but i believe that the independents will swing the president's way. this is a choice election. a choice between a president who has been working very hard over the last four years to steady this economy or for a governor that will lie to try to get the presidency. i think independent voters understand what their choice is and that choice is president barack obama. >> ohio state senator nina turner. as always, lovely to see you. thanks for your time. >> you too, thomas. >>> six days to go and america's big decision is coming our way pretty quickly. a big question, though, looming, is pennsylvania in play. the keystone state. both the campaigns are blanketing the state with ads in an effort to grab its 20 electoral votes. many political experts say if mitt romney can flip ohio, the keystone state could be next. >> by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy independent so we can create tho

previously told you sandy also suspended the campaigns of both mitt romney and president obama. how could this actually change the election? let's ask our personal finance expert vera gibbons who has been taking a look at this. market closed again today hopefully reopen tomorrow. let's talk about the impact on the presidential election. >> we have all of these canceled events. about 30 events canceled sings saturday we are resaying their schedules now. any kind of disruptions this late in the game as close as this one is significant. you have to put safety heyed of politics but never the less a lot of bumps in the road. >> if they gant get out. >> the point is to activate voters energize them and get to the polls. >> then there's the issue if power disruptions continue could not be open next. >> there could be voting disruptions. if we have the power outages they last a significant amount of time you have ballot issues accounting issues, you have delays all sorts of things to contend with. general chaos. beyond that you have the basic di disruptions here fallen trees, branchs, power lines
two points. the ohio is ahead in both ohio and virginia in early voting. today mitt romney making multiple stops in the state of florida. yesterday he took a break from campaigning, turning a dayton, ohio rally into a relief event for storm victims on the east coast. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be looking for goods even though we've gathered these things as you know, but i know that one of the things i've learned in life is that you make the difference you can and you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people. >> president obama focused on hurricane sandy and the damage it left, former president bill clinton picking up the slack taking on some extra campaign events on behalf of the president. today president clinton heads to iowa. but during a stop in minneapolis yeste
. >> both democrats and republicans don't like it. and in my opinion, if mitt romney were to win the popular vote and barack obama were to win the electoral college vote, i don't think the electoral college would be disbanded. it would blow up in a fiery ball because both parties would have been lost out with the electoral college in the course of 12 years. >> what will they do? >> well, there would have to be a constitutional amendment. there's a plan to do an end run around the constitution something called the national popular vote plan and i don't want to take too long to explain i want but it's a way for states, interstate compact and a bunch of states have agreed to it saying that they will cast their electoral votes for the winner of the national popular vote regardless of how their state votes if enough states agree to this to equal the number of 270. i know it's confusing. if you have a dvr rewind it. it makes sense. >> the bottom line is how can you win the popular vote and still not be president of the united states? >> we're the only democracy on earth that uses this system and d
of aimless bury, massachusetts. and in both cases mitt romney asked for federal assistance and federal aid. when the second disaster happened, romney and the state had money sitting in the until because people were evacuated. he refused to spend the state's money even though they had a surplus because he wanted to know what the federal government was going to give him first. he didn't think it was a moral hazard to wait for the federal government to write a check before he spent massachusetts's own money and he wound up refusing to help families in lower massachusetts who were really hurting and he refused to spend the state's money to help them. so what is the actual moral hazard here? >> steve, if it was at least a month left in the campaign i have no doubt team obama would have an ad out, at least a week or two from now, with this fema response, including disaster relief. everything would be in that ad. and but now with the election coming on tuesday, it's difficult to see how team obama cuts that ad and gets it out there in a way people don't think are overly exploiting the situation.
? >> sreenivasan: that's correct buckets for both the romney and obama campaigns the goal is to target voters sufficiently so they divide us into groups called buckets. the mobilization bucket for strong supporters of the candidate. the opposition bucket for those voting for the other guy. no need to spend resources on them. and the persuasion bucket for those valuable undecideds. and the campaigns create buckets within buckets. the more data they have, the more they can refine them. details, notes, that person tells me what their most important issue is, do i put that down? >> i would put that in the notes because we know next time when we're building an audience that, you know, joe schmo was a small business owner. you want to make sure he's a part of that audience. >> sreenivasan: the campaign collects even more data through a new organizing tool called dashboard which allows them to pinpoint not just potential voters but potential volunteers. the people in the mobilization bucket. >> this is our on-line field office and so dashboard is definitely both a social tool but also a reporting to
